Re: Allowing everything to be as it is

I don't know Adyashanti well, but listened one of his speeches that had greatly influenced my conscioussness and triggered wonderful and long awakening experiences in me. Altough these experiences were not the first or last wonderful/amazing experiences for me, I am sure that he is a great spiritual...

Re: Movies Concerning Awakening

Angulimala(2003)---Warning: Most of this movie is disgusting and describing the hell and the spiritual part only starts in the last few minutes. But it can make a satsang/dhamma talk effect If you can watch the entire movie Spring Summer Fall Winter and Spring I have other spiritual movies in my min...

Re: Porn, masturbation and spiritual awakening

Hi guys, As I continue to awaken, I feel conflicted with habit of watching porn and masturbating. And I can see this conflict is getting stronger. Many times I have fully stopped and gone back again into habit of masturbating with porn. I now watch porn that is not the typical crazy fuck fest but l...

Re: Eckhart's knowledge of gradual awakening...

I was simply saying I don't believe that he awakened overnight, because I don't think such an experience falls within the domain of human experience (i.e. it is not possible for humans to experience such a thing). And, I offered one possible reason why he would claim such an experience - i.e., to s...

Re: Does Tolle even care?

why doesn't he do more to help the global awakening. All he does is these recordings where he talks about whatever he wants for 1 hour, and hopefully we become more present if we are lucky. I mean I am grateful for what he does but he could do way more. Some of the Indian great teachers let people ...

Re: Why to trust Eckhart Tolle?

What about ego after the first experience? Is it trying to establish old situation when there was little presence? I have sometimes thougts overflow like ego wants to cling to something and be somebody. It is confusing sometimes and definitely not pleasant. I can see how ego trying to convince me t...

Re: I don't think Eckhart has fully awakened

Awakening means different things for different people or traditions. In Buddhism there are 4 stages of Enlightenment: Sotapanna(Stream Enterer), Sakadagami(Once-Returner), Anagami(Non-Returner) and Arahant. For my definition Sotapanna(Stream-Entry) is not Enlightenment-at least how it manifests in t...

Re: Why to trust Eckhart Tolle?

Hello, my friend. I read what you said, and, now, I'm curious about your practice: you bring yourself to the present moment the most that you can? If yes, how? I.e.: do you use your breathing to being present? Thank you. Hello I used many methods, Eckhart's wonderful teachings and Buddhist formal m...

Re: Why to trust Eckhart Tolle?

Well, the word "trust" must be seen from a different perspective when you are talking about true Spiritual Masters/Enlightened beings like Eckhart Tolle, Thich Nhat Hanh etc. You can also say the same thing about wonderful traditions like Practical Buddhism (true Buddhism) or other Spiritual teachin...
